Transportation Benefit District
Smokey Point Blvd near 136th Street NE Marysville

TBD Board
The Marysville City Council voted in December 2013 to create a Transportation Benefit District Board. The City Council acted in its capacity as the Marysville TBD Board to approve a 0.2% sales and use tax for transportation improvements, subject to voter approval, which voters approved through an April 2014 ballot measure.

Funding pavement preservation projects
City of Marysville TBD Project List Map The 0.2% sales tax increase will generate enough revenue to continue to preserve and repair Marysville's streets over the next 10 years ($16 million/$1.6 million per year). It will raise the sales tax rate in Marysville from 8.6% to 8.8%, effective Oct. 1, 2014. Marysville's tax rate will still remain lower than most cities in Snohomish County, which range from 7.7% to 9.6%.

Sales tax is paid by everyone who shops in Marysville and uses Marysville streets and services, not just Marysville residents.

State law requires that all revenue generated by the TBD be spent only on TBD-designated projects. A TBD Fact Sheet is available with full details. To see what's included in the 10-year plan, view the TBD project map, and project lists for pavement preservation and sidewalk/shoulder improvements, for more details.
